From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    (Gr. ekstasis, from which the word "ecstasy" is derived) denotes
    the state of one who is "out of himself." Such were the trances
    of Peter and Paul, Acts 10:10; 11:5; 22:17, ecstasies, "a
    preternatural, absorbed state of mind preparing for the
    reception of the vision", (comp. 2 Cor. 12:1-4). In Mark 5:42
    and Luke 5:26 the Greek word is rendered "astonishment,"
    "amazement" (comp. Mark 16:8; Acts 3:10).
